Robert Searle…. Ideal venue for Candy Choir,great harmonies. Saw them when they were doing a weeks stint at the Cobweb.Ron ,the keyboard player joined White Plains .Candy Choir were on Top of the Pops with Baŕry Ryan .Paul Ryan played keyboards while Ron played guitar.Eddie Wheeler played lead ,Dave played bass and Danny Beckett on drums.
Nigel Ford… Candy Choir made several visits to Battle Dances around late 60′s-early 70′s and I remember hearing them one lunch time on Radio 1 Club on my smuggled-in Ferguson tranny at school one dinner-time about ’69? ( When dinner-time was still midday…. not in the evening!!!) Ha Ha!
Andy Qunta… Great memories! I see the name Candy Choir, & what I seem to remember is great vocal harmonies!
John Wilde… The Tamla Motown sunday club. It was very good.
Great version of Silence Is Golden .
Very interesting comment from Brian Hatt….
We recorded Silence is Golden in 1966 in West Berlin at Teldec Studios on the worlds first 8track recorder.We took it back to our agent Starlight Artist in the uk and asked him to release it under our recording contract that we had . He said he would. In the same office were the Tremeloes who he all so managed. We herd nothing .The next time i herd the song it was by the Tremeloes in 1967 he had given it to them. When asked Why? he replied I have spent much money on them and they need a hit .I was so gutted i left the Candy Choir to form Orange Music to run the Studios and build Orange Amplifiers . Brian Hatt. Candy Choir.
